Certainly doesn't make me soft
May 11

That Metal Gear Online trailer is still so dang good


Now with commentary
Mar 04
 
Steven covered this well-edited footage of Metal Gear Online in December, but here it is again with commentary by online community manager Robert Peeler. Yep, that's good enough for me. The balloon-firing trap shown at 1:54 is the stuff of dreams. Same goes for the enchanting plush puppy. (At one point it was going to be a "real" dog, but the designers didn't want us to shoot that.)

Metal Gear Solid V's E3 showing minus the hour of fluff


Straight gameplay video this time
Jun 20
 
Konami posted its behind closed doors E3 demo that was the basis for my E3 preview and broken cynicism. But it did so as part of a two hour long thing with interviews and cuts away from the action. This is the straight, uninterrupted gameplay. And it's worth watching again, isn't it?
